COMEAU, Daniel Peter
1967 – 2021
It is with sadness that we announce the passing of Daniel Comeau of Leduc County at the age of fifty-four.
Dan will be lovingly remembered by his wife, Carol; daughter, Danica; stepdaughters, Leah (Marc) and Emma (Cameron) in New Zealand; his parents, Peter and Elizabeth; sister, Valmarie (Jeff); brothers, Tim and Brian (Courtney); as well as numerous nieces, nephews, relatives, friends and co-workers.
Dan was predeceased by his first wife,Sally and his eldest brother Grant.
Dan was born in 1967 in Trail, BC and came into the Comeau family as the fourth child. In 1968 the family moved to White Rock where Dan grew up as one of the “Coldicutt Gang”. He was always trying to figure out how things worked and was at a ripe age when the technology boom began and he grew in his knowledge of it as it developed. He moved with his parents to St. Albert in 1984 and got involved in electronics and website development as a career.
In 2001 he went to New Zealand and married Sally and became stepdad to Emma and Leah. He was a favourite with the local scout group and enjoyed living in a different part of the world. After Sally’s passing in 2005, he stayed for another year with the girls before moving to the Philippines.
Dan and Carol married in 2007 in the Philippines and came back to Canada where Danica joined the family in 2009. He loved being a family man and Danica was the recipient of much of his knowledge. He loved the out of doors, camping, fishing and teaching Danica survival skills. He was a talented musician and taught himself the art of knife making among many other talents. Dan loved to fix things and if he didn’t know how he would research until he figured it out. His friends and family benefited from his many talents and love of research and problem fixing.
Dan loved his job and his co-workers at Subcoe. They were his second family. Many were the challenges but he thrived in figuring out how to do things from technical/mechanical issues to social events to the hurdles presented by Covid. He will be sorely missed by all who knew him.
In Lieu of flowers donations in Dan’s memory may be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation (110-1525 Carling Avenue, Ottawa, ON, K1Z 8R9).
